COMECE welcomes this vote but notices that there is still room for improvement.
“One of the causes of the jihadi Salafism development is the lack of alternative proposals by our society” said Br Olivier Poquillon, Secretary general of COMECE, in his intervention to 5th EuropeanCatholic-Orthodox Forum.
